PSI General Secretary Election Result

After much electioneering in a closely fought contest, Peter Waldorff was elected general secretary of PSI beating UNISON's Keith Sonnet by a mere 800, 000 votes.

With a background in local government, Waldorff has been President of HK-Stat, the Danish union for government and public employees, since 2001. He has been a member of PSI’s executive board since 1998 and also sits on the European Federation of Public Service Unions’ standing committee.

UNISON had received some criticism for our policies on Palestine which are believed to have had an effect on the way some affiliates voted.
